Is Outlook 2007's Out Of Office text stored in a local file?

I'm trying to delete a users text in her OOO message and she's got some table in it, I can't delete it.  Might just be a remote issue, but I was wondering if this text is stored in an actual file on her computer that I could just delete so it will be blank and I can put in what I need to.  

Who is Participating?
On Her PC- Back up registry key
Quit Outlook if it is running.
Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE, and then click Task Manager.
On the Processes tab, verify that Outlook.exe does not appear in the list of processes. If it does, click Outlook.exe and then click End Process.
On the File menu, click Exit Task Manager.
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regedit and then click OK.
Locate and then click the following registry key:
Right-click the Resiliency subkey (if it exists), and then click Rename.
Type Resiliency.old, and then press ENTER.
Quit Registry Editor.
Start Outlook, and then click Out of Office Assistant on the Tools menu.
Go to Start > Run and type in the following and hit ENTER:

outlook /cleanrules

Outlook should be picked up, otherwise enter the full path to it followed by the /cleanrules switch.
Careful with the /cleanrules switch, as I believe it will delete all of the user's rules.

Are you able to access her mailbox via OWA?  Maybe you can delete it there if you can't do so in the Outlook client.

OOO Is not stored locally it is stored on the exchange server. Otherwise you would ONLY be able to change it on the machine you set it.
Try OWA and edit the message.

yeah, OWA won't work as we're having a permissions issue with that right now.  I'll do the /cleanrules.  She's no longer with the company and I just need to set something saying that.
Longshot9Author Commented:
/cleanrules didn't work
Neil RussellTechnical Development LeadCommented:
/cleanrules wont.  If she has left the company then why not just export her mail and then dissable the account?
The File name is outex2.ecf
